Private training - one on one training-  is only offered for specific issues that cannot be addressed in class either due to safety issues or issues that are only associated with the home.  Private sessions are held in your home (we come to you in the Nampa/Boise area) by appointment only and are $125 per hour for appointments. 
 We do always recommend our group classes over private training, except for severe aggression or issues that only exist in the home.

Private appointments are offered Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9am and 1pm,
evening and weekend appointments are not available at this time.

Covid-19 restrictions/guidelines

Our classes are taught outdoors in Canyon County and Ada County which do not currently have mask mandates. We ask that you use your own discretion and wisdom in this and respect other's choice in this as well. 




“We must support our rights or lose our character, and with it, perhaps, our liberties. A people who fail to do it can scarcely be said to hold a place among independent nations.

National honor is national property of the highest value. The sentiment in the mind of every citizen is national strength. It ought therefore to be cherished.”

 The People the Sovereigns, James Monroe, 1867.
